jobs from the bay area to houston. house democratic minority leader nancy pelosi believes that shrinking the national debt can improve america's business climate. >> again, we have to make a judgment about what to -- how do we get growth with jobs, that's where the revenue comes from. you don't get it by cutting into education, cutting back on investments in science and national institutes of health, food safety. you name it. >> ama: the san francisco democrat also said the national debt has reached, quote. i moral levels. >> job creation and economic growth will be key to president barack obama's "state of the union" address this week. you can watch the state of the union here on abc and abc7 on tuesday at 6:00 p.m. >>> still to come at 6:00. a deadly helicopter crash in southern california. the tv show the chopper was working on. >> plus, local and military first responders getting a little practice today. how they plan to help you when disaster strikes. >>> a stole dog -- stolen dog is back where she belongs. >> leigh: i'm leigh glaser. what a terrific weekend, and even
. as a biproduct of that, i would suspect that nancy pelosi is going to be speaker again pretty soon. all right? >> sounded like a raucous reaction. what was the energy like in the room? and what does it mean for the president to say he's going out there and do several fundraisers for democrats. this year. >> well, we were very excited to hear that the president is going to be with us as we head toward the 2014 elections. but we were just depending on the energy in the room. we also have a plan that was very detailed and presented to us on how we're going to get from here to there. to put the gavel in nancy pelosi's plan, clearly the president will have a busy schedule. >> thank you both for your time tonight. >> thank you. coming up, the question everyone is talking about. it's tough, it's rude, but it's real. is chris christie too overweight to be president? and is that the sound of a knockout punch? karl rove is down and out. the tea party monster can't be controlled. plus, to kill or not to kill. the hot debate over drones and presidential power is a tough one. my commentary ahead. >>> big
was government spending. ahead of healthcare and the economy. despite democratic leader nancy pelosi claiming to fox's chris wallace, washington does not have a spending problem. >> it's almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. we have a budget deficit problem we have to address. >> now pelosi went on to claim that nothing brings more money in the u.s. treasury than investing in education. investing another word for spending. bret? >> bret: so, ed, what are we hearing if the president will tack the deficit in the speech? >> interesting, because today jay carney said he does believe there is a spending problem in washington. he seems to disagree with nancy pelosi a little bit. carney went on to say he believes the problem is with spending on healthcare. so something the president tried to tack with the affordable care act and carney went on to say the president doesn't believe the government is too big now. when you compare it to historic levels, sign he is not going all in on the deficit tomorrow night. he is going all in on new investments. >> bret: okay. ed henry live on t
knows we need growth and nancy pelosi was talking, we need growth on the sunday shows and that was the message from mitt romney in the first debate where he did well and even conservatives start today say look at him, we like mitt romney. we didn't know if we loved him, but we love this guy. that's what he's talking about is growth and how you stimulate the economy. where has the growth been. the last quarter of last year, we went down and we contracted. we didn't grow at all we contracted and now the unemployment rate is when barack obama first took office at what point do the american people say, you aren't doing it? >> we're probably past that point in washington a long time ago. you referenced the poll and talked about pessimism and more and more talk about the new normal, an unhappy economy and that's the way that things are going to be, another poll or another question in that fox news poll. do you think that the president's stimulus worked in 2009? no, you don't think that it worked. he's proposing another round of this. i think at a certain point this becomes a
. that's what he was tweeting during the state of the union. he has declared nancy pelosi a domestic enemy against whom he is sworn to protect the nation. he has said that president obama is part of a socialistic elite planning to declare martial law. and he has said that the president may use the excuse of a flu pandemic to declare a martial law. he said, quote, we've seen that historically. guess how this gentleman feels about health reform? >> folks, this is obama care. let me start this by telling you what i think of this bill and obama care. they only have one agenda, and that is socialism. i call it -- i call it a steamroll of socialism that is being driven by nancy pelosi, harry reid, and fueled by barack obama. >> so very strong feelings about obama care. i should also tell you, though, that congressman browne also has very strong feelings about fruits and vegetables. he has very, very strong feelings about fruits and vegetables. >> the cdc, they're going to be calling you and finding out how many fruits and vegetables you eat today. this is socialism of the highest order. >>
friends and partners is still leading our democrats and the house of representatives. i love nancy pelosi. a very big round of applause. love nancy pelosi. also, she just generates good-looking grandbabies. they're all so handsome and sharp and beautiful. to steny hoyer and jim cli burn and javier, and thank you so much for the great work that you guys are doing each and every day. and to steve israel who worked tirelessly to bring on 49 new outstanding members of this caucus, i am -- i am looking forward to spending time with all 49 of you, and hopefully we'll be seeing you over at the white house at various events, but obviously i know that you came here to get something done. i am looking forward to working with you every single day to make sure we're doing right by the people who sent us here. now, i actually just changed the format here. i called an audible. originally the way this was scheduled is i was just going to talk, and then i was going to shake some hands, and i thought since this is not a shy bunch, it might make sense for me to take some questions and some add vishgs i'm s
votes and a minority of republicans. >> and basically hand power to nancy pelosi. >> again. that has been the precedent. >> governor, a lot of talk -- there's been a lot of talk about defense cuts, which certainly are half of the sequester. there are other programs being cut. 9.4% to unemployment benefits, 600,000 children and women lose food aid, 10,000 teachers fired. they're trying to emerge from the rock of being unsympathetic to the working poor, the middle class. you have these sequester cuts take place that undermines any argument. >> i depart from democratic orthodoxy in this one. i so bad want to cut all the fat out of the pentagon that i'm willing to do this. it's terrible. i hope we can restore some of the things. 2% medicaid cuts don't have any effect on patient care whatsoever. it is true that there are some bad cuts in there from a democratic point of view. we are never again going to get a chance to cut the pentagon back from where it's been. pentagon hasn't had any significant cuts for 30 years. a lot of money that's going to be cut is money that was not asked for but
wonder if there was a conspiracy with the electric company. >> or nancy pelosi. don't you think in a weird way, pop culture replaced patriotism as you see the pre-games and heisman and and -- halftimes and zone dances. >> it's true. because of our super bowl show we loved so much on friday, i did research and greg, it didn't used to be celebrities. at the first super bowl it was marching bands and pat activism patriotism. if this liberal professor doesn't want to love america while watching the super bowl, great. i just don't understand why you write about it or announce it to the world. it's like saying i have a bunch of bonn ons on my feet. >> she was journaling. >> kimberly. >> i brought my favorite pen. >> sorry about that. >> this is your makeup. >> that's a pen, glob oh, it is? >> can you fix it? >> yeah, i can. >> you have a broken nail? >> i -- answer a question that you pretend i might have just asked. >> okay, listen. it's hypocritical because the liberals and professors that seem to have such disdain for patriotism and the actual symbol of what guarantees our rights t
. >> mike: and hey, chris, nancy pelosis and john mccain on the show today. >> and we sat down with nancy pelosi. and one thing we talked about gun control she's calling for a study and obviously they want bans on guns and things like that. she says let's have a study whether or not this violence out of hollywood creates any violence in the real world and i said do we really need another study? here is a clip. >> why don't you go to your friends in hollywood and challenge them, shame them and say, knock it off? >> i do think whenever we do when you tell them it's evidence-based we have that throughout our proposal. in other words, we don't want to just be anecdotally writing bills. >> so the bottom line was, she was saying, you know, we're going after the gun lobby, but i'm not going to put any pressure on hollywood. >> so she moved not at all on that question he ththen? >> not a bit. >> tucker: nice try, not a bit. chris, we'll be watching. >> thanks a lot. and i say pelosi and mccain. with pelosi, quickly, a lot of talk about sequestration and whether it should be spending cuts or wheth
for immigration, one thing that nancy pelosi likes to tell and one thing i've seen personally on dlil, you'll get some of these republican businessmen from central part of california, arizona, texas, florida, and they all come here and say, hey, we need to fix this. at least for guest workers. if you take away these immigrants, as you have seen in alabama that had a very strict immigrant law, the crop product gets killed and profits go down. >> that could also be used as an umbrella to get some of the raucus members of house in line, and so far it's not a humanistic article or about the other. it's about cold, hard cash. look, keep your boat shoes firmly planted many the ground, because we're going to try and get you to talk to us about gun reform after the break. >> indeed. >> and after we come back, doubts grow about the possibility of getting an assault weapons ban passed in congress, but you would not know that from listening to president obama. we will examine the 1994 law and the case for a new legislative fight next on "now." ♪ if it wasn't for you ♪ don't know what i'd do ♪ i'd have
? this is government intervention by the republicans before they handed the gavel to nancy pelosi. and this is what they stuck the workers with. they want to destroy the post office because they want to privatize everything. today i guess you can say is chapter one, where is the banner, mission accomplished for the republican destruction of the middle class in this country. now, congressman darrell issa, who he just loves the news. he called it common sense-sense reform. of course it's common sense to darrell issa. he has already proposed a bill to put more government regulations on the post office. issa wants to restructure the postal service by capping the growth of the workforce and cutting benefits and services. cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut your way into a profit. issa has no problem leading the charge here, folks, because he's got a lot of money from one of the postal service's main competitors, you got it, ups. fedex has got a hand in this too, by the way. they're also a big contributor to the cause. they gave almost twice as much to republicans than democrats last year in the congress.
was lying to nancy pelosi. he was lying to the colleagues. and i think that's why he didn't have anyone defending him when he went down. >> right. >> i wonder what you make of new jersey senator menendez. nobody know what is to make of the story. there's two parts. whole allegation of prostitution. i have no idea what's going on there but a top donor in florida, his office was raided by the fbi last week. this guy under investigation for something and now we know that menendez made calls about medicare payments to this doctor. he is a doctor. medicare -- he made calls to medicare to try to get more reimbursement i think for this doctor. was he leaning on the feds, more than that? there's controversy for menendez and how do you think he's handled it so far and what do you think he should be doing? >> i think he's handled it pretty poorly. another aspect is the plane trips that he took down to the dominican republic on the private plane of the doctor in question. i think the plane trips cost nearly $60,000. >> right. >> for two private plane trips. the total net worth is under $100,000. h
't have cancellations. fiscal policy and nancy pelosi. >> we'll have an interview with the democratic leader in the house, nancy pelosi. one of the big issues, we just passed the fiscal cliff, but we're headed to automatic cuts of $100 billion, what's called sequestration, march 1. half in domestic programs, half in pentagon programs. she and the president want to find a different mix of tax increases and spending cuts to put that off. we'll see whether that will happen. we'll talk to her sunday. >> there are some on the little who are actually saying, well, let's let it happen. won't be that bad. >> well, yeah. and particularly because some republicans are saying, look, the problem is not that we don't have taxes that are too low. it's that we have spending that's way too high. they're saying if we don't like all of these, let's have the automatic spending cuts go through, because over the course of the next 10 years, it would cut a trillion dollars in spending. >> also you have on t h e s h o w senator john mccain who has had a high profile the last couple of weeks. >> that's right
, he'll take questions from minority leader nancy pelosi. what advice will colbert, a comedian, mind you, give democrats? alice? >> well, i'm a big colbert fan but i'm afraid even a colbert bump is not going to help his sister in that district. it's certainly going to go to a republican. i would imagine as a comedian he'll probably look at the group and encourage them, i understand there was a bipartisan reach-out by former governor sanford in an excursion to hike the appalachian trail. i would imagine he'd encourage some of the democrats including bill clinton to bypass on that. >> maria? >> if he goes in character, carol, he will beg the democrats to change their party name to republican in order to confuse voters, but if he's serious about giving them advice he would just say look democrats, don't do anything, don't say anything. the republicans are doing a great job of sinking themselves. >> oh, ouch! on that note we head to our political buzz. >> ouch. >> maria and alice, thanks so much for playing today. >> have a great weekend. >> you too. >>> the mt. washington observatory in
